Jamiu Alli-Balogun, the Lagos commissioner for basic and secondary education, says plans are underway to create additional technical colleges and vocational centres across the state.

Alli-Balogun spoke on Tuesday in Ikeja about how the state government is approaching the issue of out-of-school children.

He said creating additional technical colleges will help reduce the number of out-of-school children in the state.

The commissioner said the administration of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of the state, has ramped up efforts and strategies to meaningfully engage out-of-school children with a view to removing them from the streets.


The commissioner said the mission of the Lagos state Ministry of Basic Secondary Education (MBSE) is to ensure that no child is allowed to loiter again in the state.

“I have a mindset to boost the scope of technical and vocational education in the state in line with Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s THEMES agenda,” Alli-Balogun said.

“We want to take as much out-of-school children from the streets, so that they can be in the school learning one skill or the other, be useful to themselves, society and even be employers of labour.”
